Avantasia mainman Tobias Sammet comments: "It's amazing. We are working on this great album which is scheduled to be out in late March by the way, and I have such a great feeling about it as the first tracks sound really huge. Now, we have announced that we'll do a little tour and all of the sudden we're getting the opportunity to headline shows and festivals all over the world! Czech Republic, England, France, Belgium... A lot of first time Avantasia appearances. But this is not it! More dates are being scheduled. In April we'll do Europe. Our own tour, doing two - three hours! No support act, just Avantasia in arenas and theaters. Further information and dates coming soon."
After having been confirmed as next year's headlining act of the Masters Of Rock Festival in Czech Republic on July 14th, and Power Prog Festival in Belgium on April 12th, Avantasia are also confirmed to hit the stage at Bloodstock Festival in England on August 10th. These shows are going to mark Avantasia's first appearances in England and Belgium. Further tourdates will be announced soon.
